  1. in April Orbx showed some finished-looking screenshots of Landmark Melbourne City in their Roadmap 2021, yet it hasn't been published yet. I suspect I will see it in the next World Upgrade. P.S.: AC/DC and Midnight Oil are the best exports, give'em to us and keep your Vegiemite to yourselves. P.S.S.: AC/DC on the streets of Melbourne Dec, 1975. I rest my case... .
  2. yessssssss! The area around Brisbane is my preferred playground in oz....wonderful landscapes. That's exactly what daddy needs.
  3. I kinda understand Orbx' reservation towards small fields since in MSFS freeware has become a real competitor now. On the other platforms Orbx still has the advantage of expensive resources like extensive high-res orthos, ObjectFlow, PeopleFlow etc over freeware authors. In MSFS these advantages are practically gone. Also, MSFS comes with easy design tools and a big object library... this in conjunction with freeware libraries brings freeware now to unseen levels. Just take a look at the freeware versions of Milford Sound, Redcliffe or Samedan and you know what I mean. Of course, the Orbx objects are still more detailed/sophisticated but is this enough to justify the purchase for enough people? Also, consider that MS wants to introduce a "Gate" that will make access to freeware even easier (maybe including freeware to the stream?). That's why I do understand that Orbx is now concentrating on complex and costly projects - before another one does it.
  4. Thanks a lot for this. Already installed and tested. Fantastic. I assume Paris and other Cityscapes will come quicker to the Marketplace with the procedure now established.
  5. For some reason I cannot put my finger on Concrete has been the airport I used the most among that Puget Sound cluster of Orbx airports in P3D. A sure buy for me.
  6. To give you an explanation: I'm a very casual flyer and I use my computer for a thousand other things. In P3D times my system filled up with more and more external programs and I needed more and more time to keep them up to date before starting the sim. As a casual I wanna fly not administer. The more external programs I had the less I was using P3D, the more I was using DCS (which has no external programs). MSFS is not only amazing for its total coverage but also for what it provides out-of-the-box. I'm not very demanding - what this platform already brings along with RT weather, traffic, ATC, map and planning tools is all I need. So I'm quite determined not to use external programs anymore. Actually so determined that I again paid the full price for Orcas, Innsbruck and Darrington thus waiving Orbx' generous discount offer (and I will do that for upcoming Concrete again). Anyways, Graz has appeared on the Marketplace yesterday (I bought it along with Dundee). I'm quite relieved that all of Orbx' MSFS products will eventually show up in the Marketplace, given enough time. No problem - I'm a patient guy.
  7. I wonder if some MSFS products of yours might not come to the MSFS Marketplace for some reason or another. I'm asking because I was waiting for Sidney Cityscape and Graz to appear there. Now Notodden and Gothenburg, both of which were released at a later date, have been added to the Marketplace. Please don't think I'm impatient - I can wait (hell, there are more than enough other places to be discovered in this amazing platform). It is just a principal question.
  8. It is the Flag of the Département Savoie, the administrative subregion Courchevel is located in.
  9. "first foray"? So there might be other altiports like Méribel, Alpe d´Huez or Megève on the menu?
  10. Yessss, my most anticipated addon for a long time (since OLC Asia is still far away). A must-buy for any GA flyer.
  11. Hmm... Central did not warn me of anything during the install. I uninstalled AU SP4 and AU Holgermesh afterwards.
  12. A perfect job. I can only hope BuildingsHD will be close to this, at least the skyscrapers.
  13. Holy smokes, I've been to Melbourne ten years ago and yet don't remember the CBD this crowded. Either it was because I was struggling with the left hand traffic too much or because you had construction boom down there.
  14. That will be a typical third day buy, since I expect the servers to go down in flames the first two days.
  15. Indeed the unloading procedure only mitigates the VAS problem in P3D v3. E.g. if you're flying over Orcas Island you'll have Vancouver and Seattle inside your bubble. If you have the local OrbX cluster of airports loaded as well you'll be in trouble and no unload procedure will save you. The only possibility to solve this problem is to have a 64bit platform (and lots of RAM).
  16. Hmmm... works for me perfectly. I just bought and installed KSUN successfully.
  17. The problem is that FSX (and P3D v1+2) loads everything within 60 nm of the aircraft into the RAM, but it does not unload it when that part of scenery has left that bubble. So if you have a long flight overflying a lot of detailed payware scenery or photo areas your memory will fill up and ultimately run out of adresses. It was solved in P3D v3 when the guys at LM recoded the memory handling by inserting the much needed unloading procedure.
  18. It's not so much about the bgl or texture files but about the other acompanying files: effects for sceneries or gauges and effects for aircraft. These kind of files had to end up in the respective folders of P3D with the old method which could cause problems with overwriting each other. Of course you could avoid this by using own subfolders but not every developer did make use of this. With the XML method you can keep these files out of the P3D folders for good.
  19. Yes, you missed the Roadmap 2019 and the announcement that all TE will be for P3D4 and XP11.
  20. Two addendums... FTTJ, N'Djamena, Tchad, by Skydesigners (french air base) HTKJ, Kilimanjaro, Tansania, by Aerosoft
  21. Wonderful work, Graham. Sounds like it will come right in time for Australia v2. I'm really looking forward to both works.
  22. Living at the foothills of the Alps I'm still amazed how dry the Rockies can be... A very good place for my flights inside CRM.
  23. RIP Neil, thanks a thousand for your tremendous work.
